Writing out a cheque in France

I have come across a number of people living here in France who have never made out a French cheque as they are afraid of either making a mistake, getting it wrong or just not sure where to fill things in.

French cheques are laid out differently than in the UK in that the position for writing the name and amount in words are in different positions, also it is necessary to fill in the actual location of where you had written the cheque ie: town or city.

It is all fairly simple once you know so to this end I have provided a sample below that should help anyone in this situation.
